What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

Tommy and Annika have a new neighbor: red-haired, freckle-faced Pippi Longstocking, who has upside-down braids and no parents to tell her what to do. The three children have the most rollicking adventures on their own, with horses and monkeys, the circus, and more!

What Kind of Book is Pippi Longstocking

Quotes from This Book

  • “She had no mother and no father, and that was of course very nice because there was no one to tell her to go to bed just when she was having the most fun, and no one who could make her take cod liver oil when she much preferred caramel candy.”
  • “Don’t you worry about me. I’ll always come out on top.”
  • “But still, if it’s true, how can it be a lie?”
  • “Then she had sat down in front of her chest and looked at all her birds’ eggs and shells, and thought about the wonderful places where she and her father had collected them and about all the pleasant little shops all over the world where they had bought the beautiful things that were now in the drawers of her chest.”
